  • Working to ensure that cyclists have complete and direct access to all Bay Area bridges and transit systems.
  • Working with government agencies to ensure that all transportation policies and projects provide safe and convenient access for all bicyclists and pedestrians.
  • Supporting policies and legislation to increase funding for bicycle facilities.
  • Organizing public events to promote bicycling in the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • Working with public agencies, advocacy groups, and other parties to promote non-motorized modes of transportation, to improve air quality, and to encourage better coordination between land use and transportation planning.
